Progress on Linear Landscape

I have been adding layers and doing some sewing.  This one little landscape has my sewing table cluttered with fabrics as I choose and reject then repeat.

Gloria Loughman's Craftsy Class

The class is Linear Landscapes and it was very informative.  I took it over a year ago.  My friend did also and she has already finished her project.  I just dug mine out again and have been tweaking my fabric selections.  These are rough cut.  I just added the green.  Originally I was going to have a fall scene as the final landscape has a couple trees in the front.

Auditioning fabrics with a toddler helping is challenging, but I am liking how it is coming together.

Scrappy Trips

I am finally back to sewing!  I am mostly limited to early morning or when the two yr old is napping, but sometimes if he is watching tv with his sister or brother I can sew also.

I chose to work on Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Trips

It was technically a UFO but I only had made two blocks.  I originally was going to do it in cool colors but soon got to throwing all sorts of fabrics in.  I used up most of my pastel 2.5 inch solid strips left over from my hexigon quilt.

Here is a picture in progress.  I just finished the top but don't have a pic yet of the full quilt as it doesn't fit on my design wall.

In late March Brandon, Natalie, and Austin came to live with me.  Brandon had been visiting almost every weekend but now all three are here full time.  They arrived Friday March 27th and I retired on March 31st.  I was eligible to retire and had a long commute which wasn't a problem when I lived alone but it seemed daunting once I had a two yr old.
